Someone from the construction company has uploaded some pictures which are not that old, you can find them here.

He also states that the coaster will have a speed of 80mph. I am not sure if I should believe that.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

If that is true, in that tight area, the ride will be incredible!

I wonder what he electricity bill would be with such a powerful launch :P

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

^ Looking at the pictures that Intothewild posted a link to (thanks for sharing Intothewild) I made a small measurement of how long the launch trench is and compared that to Heide Parks Desert Race 100 km/h (62.1 Mph), my quick measurements came out that it was trench is longer then the Launch of Desert Race. So 130 km/h (80.8 mph) sounds possible to me. But if it's true this could be quite an ride.

^^ Is it just me or is it really strange, I mean if fans post pictures online the park is going after the site and he's just like posting it online (maybe) revealing information on the ride as it goes. How looslip are they aloud to be? Shouldn't he carry a zipper around his mouth all day?

Obviously someone just took care about that, the page is no longer online.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

So, where are the experts to identify/confirm the manufacturer based on the footers? ;)
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

I still don't understand why not one Intamin LSM Coaster has the Flywheel Inverter to Buffer the Load Requirements when Intamin get's all of their LSM Motors from InTraSys like everyone else that has the Flywheel Inverter. :|

^ Intamin certainly uses some more conventional flywheels. (Or, for instance, the "flywheel" for the first launch of Juvelen is the second one, and vice-versa).
I thought only the Maurer one and Wicked use brakes as an generator.
